Windows 10: Anniversary update problems
As you're never seeing it even on restart, this suggests (apart from some specific corruption) that a setting like this applies:
Disable the Windows 10 Lock Screen (Anniversary Update) - gHacks Tech News

Sorry, it depends on what you mean by not seeing it on the restart. By "lock screens" I mean the full screen (and very attractive) picture screens that feature the time and a few little Windows hints etc every time you wake the system up from sleep. On restart I see the sign in box for a while (I don't have a password so it disappears automatically), but never the lock screens when waking from sleep.
I'm unsure of the relevance of that link, as it seems to be solely about disabling the lockscreen, which would be a nice problem to have from my perspective
Hi, the idea is to check those settings and apply the reverse if appropriate.
I know what a lock screen is, but they appear in different circumstances as I said.
There does not seem to be a local security policy on the tablet, so I can't use that option. I don't really want to do any more fiddling with the registry, but I guess I'll have to as MS continue to introduce ridiculous bugs. I've just tried following the same update procedure on another, identical tablet, brand new and never used beyond updating to Win 10 from 8.1, with precisely the same result: no lock screen.
And I didn't mean to insult your intelligence! I'm just aware that there are two separate screens I've seen - the pictorial one, and the one with the "Sign in" button (both of which should be amalgamated in the AU). I see the button when I restart under AU, but I've never seen the pictorial screen during a restart even before AU.
New findings: after an update, I briefly saw a flash of a lock screen a couple of times, but it disappeared without actually locking the screen.
A bit more experimenting found that if I go to the user picture and click "Lock", the lock screen flashes for a second, then vanishes.
If I sign out of the account, I see the lock screen and superimposed sign in button as expected, but that's the only time I actually see it. So the images and stuff are still there; Windows just forgets to actually use them for their intended purpose.
Almost sounds as if your manufacturer has done sthg to dispense with them. Sorry, beyond reinstalling I've ideas. Perhaps someone else can help.
I updated my Windows 10 using media creation tools, after ~3hrs the update completed, but I had a problem. The OS couldnt access my external hdd. Because of that I decided to rollback, my hdd worked again. After checking that the update was in fact...
I downloaded and installed the Anniversary update on my Dell laptop last week. Since then, I've been having trouble with the laptop's WiFi adapter setting getting changed from "Obtain DNS server address automatically" to "Use the following DNS...
I've tested a few anniversary update features and although it was going to get disabled on Win 10 Pro only, on Enterprise also some tricks are not working.
As usual, to save time, after each clean Windows installation, I run a number of .reg...
After waiting for it to show up, I went to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12387/windows-10-update-history?ocid=update_setting_client and asked for the upgrade. After a few hours of downloading + installing I turned on my desktop and it...
Since the Anniversary update (10.14393.51), which I did yesterday, to a Windows 10 Home laptop , I have several problems with Windows apps.
